Lately I have been randomly dropping into older files from the last couple years looking for treasures that had been forgotten. Here are a few of Lennies (my name for lenticular clouds) over Mount Hood and some interesting fluffy wannabe lennies over Mount Adams. Judging from the rest of the day, the clouds over Mount Adams probably were more distinctly lenticular in form a bit earlier in the day.
All images except the vertical shot are also links to the corresponding image on Smugmug.
This first one, same as the featured one, was shot from White Salmon, Washington, looking south into Oregon.
These next three are all of Mount Adams taken from Hood River, Oregon looking north into Washington
More information on Lenticular cloud formations:
Altocumulus lenticularis. These formations are caused by wave motions in the atmosphere and are frequently seen in mountainous or hilly areas. They are often called wave clouds. They may be triggered off by hills only a few hundred metres high and may extend downwind for over 100 km. The cloud elements form at the windward edge of the cloud and are carried to the downwind edge where they evaporate, as can be seen here. The cloud as a whole is usually stationary or slow moving.
You can view a very large set of Lenticular Cloud images here on my Flickr site, just click on this link
